First Parks & Recreation Master Plan community meeting Feb. 1 at 5 p.m.

Press release from Buncombe County

The first Systemwide Parks & Recreation Master Plan community meeting takes place tomorrow Thursday, February 1 from 5-7 p.m. at East Asheville Library. This interactive meeting will allow participants to share their voices and feedback by participating in various parks, recreation, greenways, trails, and open space planning exercises. By asking how residents currently use County parks and services, and what they want to see in the future, community voices will create the roadmap for Parks & Recreation to follow for the next 20 years.

Can’t make the meeting? The livestream of this event and the online survey will be available on the Systemwide Parks & Recreation Master Plan website.

The second community meeting will take place on Thursday, March 21 from 5-7 p.m. at Enka High School. Language services will be available to Spanish-speaking community members at both community meetings.

Buncombe County Parks & Recreation launched an online survey that will be available until early fall for the public to share their vision of the future of parks, recreation, greenways, trails, and open space. Take the survey here.
